You've reached the website of η (eta), a person who programs stuff. And, also, writes stuff (usually about programming). The editors of this website would like to advise readers to stay away from non-programming related utterances, by the way.
Readers should also note that η, although described as a programmer and writer, only rarely partakes in either activity, as evidenced by the dates provided next to all information below. (However, the dates are at least formatted with ISO 8601.)
Anyhow. Below, you should find various lists, which will attempt to describe me and my activities - a method that should prove more efficient than reading this rather obfuscated introductory paragraph.
'recent' blog posts (see all)
I have an Android phone. This is, in my opinion, vastly superior to the other major alternative of having an Apple phone, for a variety of reasons which could fill an entire other blog post. However, there are some downsides - primarily, the major one is having to rely on Google Play Services to provide a whole bunch of useful functionality, like push notifications. [read more]
Asynchronous Rust programming is a disaster and a mess. [read more]

- I'm an avid Rustacean (i.e. user of the Rust programming language), and program mainly in that.
- I also know a fair amount of C, although this has likely deteriorated given disuse.
- Web design, I guess? I mean, I know enough to get by, although I wouldn't exactly call this website a masterpiece. (It also is just a heavily modified version of the jekyll templates...)
- At least this iteration of the website doesn't use 3 different external libraries, like the previous one did.
(Why in the world would you want to do such a thing?)
